Proof of Concept - Challenge Us
Together with Inroads analysts and/or our
partner experts, we help define your "proof of concept"
requirements so your team can determine if the Dimensional
Insight solution is the right solution for your organizational
1. Identify your business objectives. First,
we start with your business objectives. Are you trying to find revenue
opportunities, isolate distribution problems, or streamline financial
reporting? Maybe you are just looking for a solution to better analyse/leverage
your Data Warehouse? This initial review encompasses your reporting
mechanisms, identification of reporting gaps and ad-hoc query reporting
if required. Your list of objectives then become the basis for a
2. Data and model.
Once the objectives are defined, we need
to locate data sources and extract from source database(s) and/or
flat files, i.e. Excel. We then build your models with your input
on business rules and elementary data definitions. We can also work
with scrambled data and sign an NDA as required.
3. Design of views,
graphs, and reports for distribution.
The model(s) from Step 2 are used for business analysis and reporting
and perhaps more advanced distribution methods such as KPI's and
dashboards. Initial user deliverables, including "DiveBooks"
and "Markers," may also be created, tested, and refined.
4. Implementation and feedback. Upon successful
creation of displays and reports, the PoC project is delivered.
We will provide training to system administrators and evaluation
end-users. Training is delivered on-site and via the web. During
the trial period, feedback sessions will be scheduled to assist
you with your evaluation of the Dimensional Insight solution.
